Called in for lunch on a recent visit to the Isle of Wight. We were most impressed with the friendly and efficient service and excellent selection of dishes on offer. Good home cooked food and a great location overlooking the Solent make this a must for any visit to Yarmouth.

Called in here after our 1st choice restaurant was full. Very busy cafe but still excellent service and lovely food. Always good for a light meal and cuppa.

There wasn't much open in Yarmouth late on a Friday afternoon on the 2nd January so it meant that the Gossips Cafe was busy! Fast efficient service, lovely cakes and scones with fab coffee and tea. Great location with views over the harbour watching the ferries arriving/departing.

A nice litle cafe with a good menu.Views across the harbour were a bonus. Reasonalbly pricesd. Fairly small so in high season it would probably be crowded, It appears popular with he locals which is a good advertisnment!

Nice cafe with great views across the Solent. Warm and comfortable. We had baked potatoes with beans and cheese. Was nice and filling. Hot chocolate was good too : ) A good spot for Famies, couples or friends to meet up.

We were told this was one of the best Yarmouth cafes and it certainly was. Spacious inside with a few tables outside. Very good menu with Specials Board. We enjoyed one of their delicious cakes and a hot chocolate. The menu dishes were very tempting but we had had a full English breakfast at Norton Grange so couldn't indulge! Highly... More

What a brilliant place the Gossips Cafe is. Not only is the location amazing with its views of the sea, ferry and pier, but the food is varied, fresh and lovely accompanied by attentive passionate staff. Coffee and cake, wraps, drinks, crab, specials and ice creams. Get a window seat of which there are many, sit back and relax absorbing... More

Popped in for breakfast and we had two 'full English' and two small breakfast, all delicious and seemed freshly cooked. Bit disappointed that they refused to swap beans for mushroom. "No we don't swap! But you don't need to have the beans and can pay extra for the mushroom! Good range of food and some tasty looking cakes. Good view... More
